steve schmidt. he is a republican senior strategist from the mccain/palin ticket in '08, msnbc analyst. steve, thank you for being here. good to see you. >> good to see you, rachel. happy new year. >> you too. i know you are a supporter of gun rights, steve. i know you are also a political realist. how do you assess the strength of the effort to try to come up with some form of reform agenda after newtown and after tucson? >> look, i think that the ad that you showed is obviously enormously compelling. it's emotional. the whole country was traumatized by this unspeakable tragedy that took place in newtown, and the tragedies that took place before it. and sadly, the tragedies that are going to take place next. and we don't know where those will be. but the nra is a fearsome political lobby. members particularly in the republican party are terrified of being primaried. this issue is often covered through a partisan prism when it should be looked at through a regional prism. if you talk about democrats in the south, in the mountain west, and places like north dakota, and you saw the new s

shows. joining us is the president of strategies and steve hayes are, for a fair and balanced debate. john rockerts pointed out, there are no fewer than 10 bills under consideration in the house of representatives right now to oppose some sort of new gun control from limiting the size of clips to resurrecting the assault ban. a working group led by vice-president biden is proposing these. let's look at what the washington post rer reports, a working group led by vice-president biden is considering measures that would require universal background checks for firearms buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks and stricter penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. would that help? >> some of them will. i think some of them won't. i think the fact of the matter is -- let me state clearly where i am coming from, someone who lived in a home with a man who should not have guns and lived through the incident of someone trying to kill somebody and married to a former nra board member. so vicome to this f

there is no place like home to the estimate i think the media is fantastic. [laughter] [inaudible] steve batvinis dippers are not formally traded. even the newspapers still wants to make money but they are not under any kind of pressure to make to digit revenue. we have a publisher that is still in town and wants to keep the paper alive and he doesn't make money for the rest of the year. i used to be skeptical about the newspapers because they are a lot better. >> it really depends on the family come and german newspapers are falling to the right-wing, left-wing center and we know there will be orientations to focus newspapers in terms of family, you have pulitzer that our great families, great dynasties that didn't necessarily keep the greatest journalism who doesn't do the greatest journalism at the family-owned papers were motivated differently and they were not necessarily better. i am not speaking in favor of i worry about corporate owned media because they don't care so much about the enterprise of journalism. if the proponent of journalism of ink today is rupert murdoch. he loves newspaper
. >>> this sunday on "60 minutes" steve kroft examines how high-tech is replacing humans. >> reporter: bruce welty is ceo of quiet logistics. then tire operation was designed around the small orange robot made by a company outside boston called kiva and can now be found in warehouses all over the country. this is the order she's filling on this screen? >> yeah. in a typical warehouse she'd have to walk from location to location. that's the innovation here is that the product comes to her. >> reporter: and all of this is preprogrammed? nobody has to sit and tell the robots where to go? >> no. no. a lot of algorithm. a lot of time went into this. >> reporter: customer orders are transmitted from a computer through wi-fi that direct the robots guiding them across an electronic checkerboard with bar codes in the panels. if. >> if they're not carrying anything they can go underthe grid. we call that tunnelling. >> reporter: you'd think they would run into each other. >> it is fascinating. >> you can see steve's full report sunday night on "60 minutes." >>> some cities are now run
, so let's talk about what is going on in texas. first of all what can you tell us about steve and amber, the democratic donors based in texas. do you know about them? >> oh, sure. they are big democratic contributors in the state of texas, and there are very few democratic candidates in texas to give money to. all of the office holders at the state-wide level are republicans, but they are major contributors for barack obama, went after rick perry a couple of years ago, ran an ad chiding perry, daring perry to engage his democratic opponent in debate. ran full page ad with a picture of perry on it with the word coward on it. and so have a relatively young guy in these fights is really a feather in the cap of those folks, both democrats in texas and folks nationally. >> jennifer: democrats in texas often seems to be an oxymoron but for those outside of texas who know there are strong democratic supporters who are willing to poke rick perry in the eye gives us comfort. today rick perry actually slammed governor cuomo's proposed assault weapon's ban. wha
from frostburg, maryland. independent line. caller: good morning, steve. i had a daughter that was murder ed and these people out there in newtown, connecticut -- my daughter was 5 years old. those parents will never be the same again. when the founders wrote the constitution for the second amendment they didn't have 50 caliber ak-47's and these other high assault rifles that were designed specifically to kill people. in our country we have too many sick people. my government continues to bow down to people like the n.r.a. and we need prudent, wise people making rules in our country now and quit butting down -- quit bowing down to these groups that are primarily in it for money. we have too many dying and too much sickness in the country. it needs to stop. somebody has to stand up and say enough is enough and use wisdom with the power they have in washington. host: thank you. are you still with us. caller: yes. host: what happened in your situati situation? 1979er: she was murdered in by a crazy person, another powe of america's crazy people. host: where was she killed? ca
gave up. the other one was still going. the program manager, steve squires, has said, put it in writing, what they have done in the past five years could have been done in one week if we had had human intelligence in a time delay to control the robots. that is what i'm proposing -- so we go to the moon of march so we can control the robots, not just from the surface of the earth but from a stable point on the far side of the moon so that we can look at the south pole where there are craters that hold a lot of shells. it is cold there, there are ice crystals -- that is where the u.s. wants to establish a main base on the moon. if we forget about the moon and do not go there -- do you think that will happen? no. china will decide where the main bases going to be. we know more about the noon than any other country. we have been there. why should we turn over leadership? that is going to take a strong leader to assert that we will build the infrastructure to help other people. we should put the first habitation, not for our people to go there, but so we can learn how to cover it with lunar
in the united states. host: joe from georgia. caller: i love c-span. we have three taxpayer champions. steve more is a good friend of mine. he was talking to john boehner. he said the president said we didn't have a spending problem. i was amazed at that. we get congressmen collins yesterday to talk about cutting the spending. we have a spending problem. your comments and what the president said about a spending problem. i think steve moore is a great champion. guest: i didn't hear anybody say anything to anybody else. spending is at an all-time high. we have a spending in relation to a revenue problem. we have to take a look long term. if the people in charge of the social security system say this is not sustainable over long period of time, that spending challenge -- how do you pay for those promises? there is that part. when the deficit go up as much as they have gone up -- we're still struggling with an unemployment rate that is just below 8%. if it was 5%, things will look different. we have an imbalance on spending and revenue. part of growth is having a competitive jobs climate. that
the world -- or from the u.s., to help control them. abc's steve osunsami has more. steve, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. wildlife officials tell us the problem just isn't in the everglades. they're now seeing these large snakes in parks, in people's holmes. and they're hoping this hunt will help. florida authorities are desperate to get rid of these snakes, calling this a snake hunting mission. no experience necessary. no licensed needed. just a gun or a knife. by some estimates, nearly 150,000 pythons are living in the everglades alone. but the snakes haven't stopped there. >> they're starting to come back into civilization, looking for easy food, our pets. that's typically what they're feeding on. cats, small dogs. >> reporter: state wrangler scott mullen says families are now finding them in parks, high grass and even backyards. and he's been busy making house calls. >> when people call about a python, it's a totally different sound on the phone. you can hear it in their voice. they're very excited, very nervous. >> reporter: pythons are native to southeast asia. but
movies. >> rose: the collaboration between the two of them is, clearly is between steve and tony, but also catherine and mark, i mean, mackerel informed that film by the sort of -- because he is a former reporter, what he went to find in terms of the experiences and then figured out how to make a movie out of those experiences in a driving narrative, you know, and they chose -- they had to change it after the assassination, after the killing of osama bin laden. >> yes, this he threw out the, out the earlier movie and started all over. >> rose: so tell me about ang lee and what you think of this movie. >> i admire ang lee greatly and i don't think i would have put it on the best film of the years myself but it is technically very invasive like pi and i think it was one of the few occasions in the past few years with the wave of 3-d films that it actually took me some place i wasn't expecting him to take it what he did with high definition and the different textures of movement of water on the screen, it is an incredible looking film. >> rose: tell me what it was you saw in the be
all, but do this cluster right here. >> i'm steve, with the marijuana policy project, and one of the lead drafters of the initiatives in colorado. i first -- hi, troy, how are you? >> good to see you. [laughter] >> i wanted to address troy what you said about the 2009 -- >> how bad was it? >> policy measures here. just outdated the law passed in 2010 mandated background checks of owners with dispensaries so the owners now are completely felony free and legitimate. that leads into my question that i'll pose about the process, and the obama administration has not attempted to meet with the drafters of the initiative or really any stake holders in colorado or washington and wondering whether that's an appropriate way to determine or settle the state, federal conflict. >> it's been busy lately. let's -- any others here? the gentleman here. make them quick if you don't mind. >> sure. neil franklin, director of law enforcement against prohibition. hear about leadership, again, steve mentioned leadership. special markets, this is the impotent congress, no leadership there. is this an
. host: this next caller is steve in missouri. caller: the slide that showed just a moment ago represents the state of our country. if you really look at it, we are losing the group that was the most self-reliant in this country. and the other folks are becoming more and more dependent upon government. the other comment i would like to make is that if we would change the programs so that politicians actually had to rely on these programs as well as the rest of the country, maybe there would be some motivation to change the programs. guest: that is an interesting point. the silent generation, has some of them call them, those folks who are pre-baby boom, but post- .reatest generation projec a lot of them came of age in the truman and eisenhower years. it is a generation that has been a bit more skeptical of government all along. they have never been terribly supportive of the government is expanding and taking on a bigger role. not so much as the generation that preceded them, who came out of the new deal era and world war ii and sought a much more powerful role for government in our socie
